Brianne Farley and 1 other person liked Holly's review of Ike's Incredible Ink:
Ike's Incredible Ink by Brianne Farley
"I laughed when Ike found all kinds of ways to procrastinate instead of sitting down to write. I think anyone who tries to make writing a part of daily life has experienced this frustration. After quite an adventure trying to make his own ink, he f..." Read more of this review »
Ike's Incredible Ink by Brianne Farley
"Written in a similar style as the beloved If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, Ike's Incredible Ink is a story about imagination and problem solving! Ike wants to write an incredibly awesome story, but he is stuck! And that is because he needs special in..." Read more of this review »

“Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.”
